Frontières@Brussels announces the 2015 project line-up
- The event returns to the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, with a total of 24 selected projects hailing from Europe and America
After a highly successful 2014 that saw the debut of its European edition, Frontières@Brussels, and a record level of attendance at its third North American edition at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, Frontières returns to the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) for its second European edition from 9‐11 April 2015.
Frontières is the first and only co‐production market to connect North America with Europe in an environment specifically focused on genre-film production and financing. Frontières marks its return to the heart of Europe with an expanded Frontières line‐up that will allow more projects to participate in live pitch sessions, and will also feature specialised spotlights including a Market Spotlight that will bring together the best of the best in genre-film projects and industry initiatives from around the world. The Market Spotlight for Brussels will feature projects co‐presented by Blood Window at Ventana Sur in Argentina, and the European Genre Forum at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival. Frontières@Brussels will also feature a Seeking Director spotlight, which will include three projects in development: Damnation Island (Netherlands), The Hag (Canada) and The Lodgers (Ireland).
Following the announcement of the pre‐selection of On the Threshold (read the news), the English-language remake of Éric Tessier’s Sur le seuil, Frontières@Brussels 2015 features a strong cross‐section of projects from emerging and established filmmakers, including producer Carole Scotta, director John Harrison, producers Misha Jaari and Mark Lwoff, director Alexandre O Philippe, executive producer Michael Baker, and producer Andrew D Corkin.
